In Loving Memory

Stockmann, Richard Michael

February 14, 1959 - April 15, 2024

Monday, April 15, 2024.

Richard Michael Stockmann, 65, of Saint Louis, MO, passed away peacefully at home. 

Richard and Lisa spent the last twenty years traveling, fishing, going to the horse track, and making beautiful memories with their blended family.  Richard, the youngest of 7 children, was born on Valentine’s Day, 1959, to Frank and Mary Stockmann in St. Louis, Missouri.  He loved reminiscing about his childhood, especially his years playing high school football for SLUH (class of ’77).  Family was always the most important aspect of his life.  Nothing made him more proud than spending time with his 5 grandkids and his 9 bonus grandkids.  He was the proudest Papa in the world.  

Richard is a lifelong city of St. Louis resident and was proud to call it home.  He dedicated over 30 years to the City of St. Louis, spending the majority of that proudly serving the St. Louis Fire Department as an Emergency Dispatcher, following in his father’s footsteps who was a Battalion Chief.  

Family Who Went Before

Richard was preceded in death by his parents Frank Stockmann, (2012) and Mary Stockmann (nee Murphy) (2019), his older sisters Mary Kay Pursley (2023) and Nancy Sexton (2024), and nephew Steve Stroud (2024).

Family He Left Behind

He is survived by his four children Stephanie Nipper (Matt and Ella), Malorie Mueller (Craig, Kaine, Thomas, Madilyn), Brett Stockmann (Liz and Teddy), Jamie Reese (Scott, Hadley, Dean) and wife Lisa Buttry and her four children Nikkie Tate (Chad, Cameron, Jillian, Olivia, and Keagan), Josh Kleinik (Nikki, Lorelei, Josephine, Kevin), Teagan Buttry (Chris), Bennie Buttry, as well as the mother of his four children, Donna Cox.

As mentioned, Richard is the youngest of seven children. He leaves behind four siblings, Tom Stockmann (Bonnie), John Stockmann (Dora), Carol Sykora (David), and Judi Stroud (Gary) and fourteen nieces and nephews, Gail, Laura, Rob, Mark, Matt, Keith, Jeremy, Jenny, Michelle, Melissa, Monica, Melinda, Rich, and Mike.

We are eternally grateful for the years we had with him and will forever cherish the amazing memories of him riding around on his scooter while his grandkids excitedly honking the horn, big birthday donuts, fun times at the horse track, boat rides at the lake, birthday dinners, holidays, and of course his phone calls, videos, advice, and hugs and kisses.  He was our biggest supporter and his boisterous laugh and terrible dad jokes will be forever missed.  We love you daddy.

Visitation at Kutis Affton Chapel 10151 Gravois Rd. 63123 on Wednesday, April 17 from 4-8 pm. and then at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church on Thursday, April 18 from 9:00 am. until Funeral Mass time at 10:00 am. Mass. Interment at Resurrection Cemetery.
